Global Perspectives through the Lens of Irish History & Culture
Course Description: The program offers an important socio-historical framework of the history of Ireland from pre-Christian to modern times. We include an overview on Celtic Ireland, British imperialism, Famine and Emigration, Irish-American impact on the United States, with a focus on the Civil Rights movement in Northern Ireland, the subsequent ‘Troubles,’ the conflict resolution in Northern Ireland and current Peace Process. A comprehensive program of field trips is integrated with the class teaching to reinforce the learning outcomes.
Classes are taught by faculty at Institute of Study Abroad Ireland, and expert guest lecturers.
Guided field trips are led by faculty and expert guides. All outdoor and adventure activities are led by qualified instructors.
